Chapter 6: Christmastime

Sleigh Ride
Christmas Time is Here
O Come O Come Emmanuel
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
This Christmas
Away in a Manger
Carol of the Bells
O Little Town of Bethlehem
Rise Up Shepherd and Follow
Gabriel's Message
The First Noel
White Christmas
Under the Boardwalk
Let Me Call You Sweetheart
Jingle-Bell Rock
I Believe
Star-Spangled Banner
O Canada!

Chicago's excellent Contemporary Christian sextet Chapter 6, who we have enjoyed on the stage at the Harmony Sweeps Finals, have a poised, strong, jazz-flavored CD in "Christmas time." 12 songs, notably the light, scatty "Sleigh Ride," a Chanticleer-like arrangement of "O Come, O Come Emmanuel," a surprising scatty Manhattan Transferish arrangement of "Hark the Herald Angels Sing," a rap-flavored "This Christmas," a blue-note "Away in a Manger," a jazzy, driving "Carol of the Bells," surprising, hip vocal percussion arrangements of "O Little Town of Bethlehem," "Rise Up Shepherd and Follow," a moody "Gabriel's Message," a blue-note "The First Noel" and a stunningly jazzy "White Christmas." An unexpected, but impressive Christmas album for very talented Chapter 6.
